    One thought on “Six for Gold”

    1. Oh boy! This was a nice surprise!The first ten pages contains more excitement than all the other five installments put together. Now this is a pace and tension that can not be maintained of course, but it's a flying and inspiring start and the short chapters cross cutting between Egypt and Constantinople keeps anything from feeling unnecessarily lengthy.The excursion to The Land of the Nile (in pursuit of suicidal sheep!) is great fun, bringing our dear Lord Chamberlain somewhat out of his comfo [...]

    2. John is in Egypt to solve a mystery of a sheep who committed suicide. The ongoing court plots are present and the book moves back and forth between Egypt and Constnanipole and the characters who remain there. As with teh rest of these, an enjoyable read, but not compelling. I like the tidbits about the time period and the glimpse into the life styles then.
